Re: issue since updating jaws

Yeah, I can remember this as far back as Windows 7 maybe. Definitely 8.1. Again, it’s pretty infrequent. Enough so at least that when it happens, I just turn Jaws off and on and continue with my day.

I rebooted and it worked who knows if it is Jaws.  I got a windows update to so there is no telling.

This has popped up for me every blue moon, but with older versions of Jaws as well.

Unloading and loading jaws fixes it.

I have to imagine it’s some weird focus issue as all the windows show up if you go to the taskview, but anyway, the fix is easy enough.

I have an issue I don’t know if it’s a windows10 issue or jaws.  I alt tab it doesn’t show every thing open.  I have 3 windows open it only goes back through 2 of the windows.  Any help is appreciated.

  1. Open adobe acrobat reader dc
  2. Go to the help menu
  3. Arrow up one time to check for updates
  4. Follow the updater prompts if any update is available or not
  5. That’s about it 😃

That Putty thing is indeed good news, as I always dreaded having to wrote the jaws cursor to read what was happening in a Putty session.

Hello all:

 

Just a note to say that I am very happy with two things I note in the latest update of JAWS2019:

 

First and uppermost, the fact that when composing a new email with Outlook 2016 and landing on the TO: field, when you begin typing a name or email address, it now behaves like it used to, with JAWS reading choices as you type.

 

Secondly, I am very happy they are finally paying attention to PuTTY, the free SFTP client that many of us use to access a remote command line, in my case for Unix servers.  It has a ways to go, as it still does not read the actual line the cursor is on, nor when you backup to correct something you typed, but at least it echoes the screen as results appear.  I hope they keep working on this tool, so important to some of us.

 

Regards,

 

Humberto

 

 

 


Re: In Outlook Jaws does not start at the top of the body of the email.

Jim Pursley
 

I don't experience this issue and just got a monthly update.  I'm running Win10 version 1809 pro.  Do you have JAWS set via quick settings to read automatically?  With autoread, I need to do nothing, but I can speed up the reading process by using the down arrow to skip initial text I don't want.  Default is set not to read automatically.

Hi Everyone,
I am not sure when this started happening. I don’t know if it started after the last windows update or the latest update of Jaws and Zoomtext. I have notice when I open an email in 2010 Outlook I was able to just hit the arrow up key and Jaws would be at the top of the email body. Now I have to press the ctrl + home key to go to the top of the email then press the down arrow to start reading. Anyone else experience this issue. Any suggestions on what I could change or do to make Jaws be at the top of the email body?

Re: Spell check in Outlook2010

LeDon
 

When I use spell check with outlook 2010 I go to the top of the page and press F7. That will take me to the first misspelled word in the document. Spell check spells the word that is misspelled the way I spelled it. I press the tab key and that brings me to the suggested replacement list. Usually the one on top of the list is the one I want. But, if it isn’t I use the arrow keys to choose the one I want from the list.

When I find the spelling I want I press the tab key repeatedly  until I find the action I want, usually that is to replace. Then I press the return key and spell check continues to the next misspelled word. I will say that I don’t look for misspelled words while I type, because that interrupts my thought process and I have trouble creating sentences. So I go to the top of the document to check for misspelled words after I have finished my thoughts. That is the way I have spell checked this email.

You probably realize this, but for others, it is echoing the number of characters left that can be typed.
Try using insert S until it says none, maybe that will work.

A good example of an inaccessible site with some inaccessible control elments.

Good morning,

I am going to be doing a webinar about accessible websites and looking for a good website to demonstrate a site that is not super accessible. I have one in place, however, would love to find one perhaps an ecommerce site or a site with a form where some of the controls like combo boxes or buttons are not accessible. If anyone has a suggestion please let me know.

Thanks

hi:


I use Firefox as my default browser and it works great. As was stated earlier, it is your personal preference but if in doubt, try which ever browsers you are interested in and pick the one that works best for you.?? nobody likes the same browser and each of them do and act differently. each one does certain things better than others and it is up to your own personal preferences and what you want to do with them.

Hi Alison,
It really comes down to personal preference.
I use Chrome 99% of the time followed occasionally by firefox and then
Edge. I'll probably start using the combination of chrome and edge
once it gets further along to release.
